The Spike Island 30th Anniversary Tour: 1990 - 2020

In 1989, The Stone Roses released their seminal debut album ‘The Stone Roses’ and the following year cemented their reputation as one of the UK’s most notable acts by performing at Spike Island, Widness on May 27th 1990. This was a generation defining gig, a gathering of people during ‘the second summer of love’ that epitomised the Madchester and Rave counter culture movement of the late 1980’s & early 1990’s.

In 2020, The Total Stone Roses (UK’s No.1 Stone Roses tribute) celebrate the 30th Anniversary of this incendiary event with a full UK & Ireland Tour.

If you love I Am The Resurrection, Made Of Stone, Fools Gold, Waterfall, She Bangs The Drums and many more then do not miss this exclusive opportunity to hear your favourite Stone Roses anthems performed live by the UK’s finest tribute!

Support comes from Oaysis, one of the UK’s best Oasis tribute bands performing a hits packed set that’s guaranteed to be BIBLICAL!

Sabbra CadabraSabbra Cadabra

Sabbra Cadabra is the closest thing you can get to an early 1970s Black Sabbath show without using a time travel device! The group features Neil Priddey on lead guitar as ‘Tony’, Tim Campling on bass as ‘Geezer’, Stuart Mills on drums as ‘Bill’ and of course, starring as ‘Ozzy’, is vocalist Kevin McGillian. The Sabbra Cadabra show is a very faithful reproduction of early Sabbath material, featuring absolute classics from the first 8 albums with the original line-up between 1970 and 1978. The attention to detail with performing and attempting to look like the Godfathers of Heavy Metal is simply superb. After all, you don’w want to watch just a bunch of guys in jeans and t-shirts do you?! Sabbra Cadabra get as close as you can get to being authentic to the legend that is Black Sabbath, so they don’t play any Ozzy solo material, they don’t play anything from after 1978 and they don’t play the songs like a covers band would! For a totally absorbing and realistic Black Sabbath material (and many have said better-sounding than the last couple of Sabbath concerts...) then you simply cannot miss seeing Sabbra Cadabra for the best Sabbath experience you’re likely to see! Don’t miss it! Sabbra Cadabra play 2 hours of non-stop classic Sabbath...no Ozzy solo songs...no Randy Rhoads or Zakk Wylde 'interpretations' of Sabbath...no dodgy wigs...no 'pub band cover versions'...no changing the keys from the originals...THE ULTIMATE TRIBUTE TO SABBATH, PLAYED LIKE SABBATH, SOUNDS LIKE SABBATH!

Martin's singing credentials were proven when he was chosen by original Marillion guitar Steve Rothery to sing in his solo band. On the lead twin guitar are the brothers grimm, Mark and Stuart Mitchell, both have performed on tour with original Iron Maiden singer Paul Dianno and know exactly how a Maiden tribute should sound! Completing the line up on bass is the Glasgow legend that is Allen Bell as wee 'arry! On drums we have the amazing Mark Bray who also features in top Rush tribute Moving Pictures, both top class musicians.

Maiden Scotland cover all era of Iron Maiden. Although the focus is mainly on the classic Eighties era. You will hear all the classic hits like Run to the Hills, Wasted Years and Can I Play with Madness but also epic album tracks like Fear of the Dark and Phantom of the Opera.
